Mission

Western Little League is an organization created under the umbrella of Little League International, Incorporated.  We are part of District 9 with 23 leagues served.  Western Little League is a non-profit organization whose mission is to “promote, develop, supervise and voluntarily assist the interest of those who will participate in Little League Baseball and Softball".  Through proper guidance and exemplary leadership, the Little League program assists youth in developing the qualities of citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being.  By espousing the virtues of character, courage and loyalty Western Little League’s Baseball and Softball programs are designed to develop superior citizens rather than just superior athletes.
